I've got an old weblogic app using entity beans and BMP ( so I have most of the data access code in place and working ). I'm migrating this to JBoss and I'd like to ditch the entity beans so that we can more easily cluster and scale. So has anyone got any examples of doing this? I'm just sure this has been done a lot before. Session Beans have ported pretty painlessly. I'd given some thought to getting rid of EJB's altogther but I think it adds too much risk. Thoughts, Ideas, Help?
If you're using entity beans, there can be a lot of app server specific stuff in the deployment descriptor files. If you've got your entity beans behind a DAO pattern it should be fairly easy to migrate. If not, I'd consider implementing a DAO pattern.
